Have you considered adopting a dog but you’re not quite ready to take the plunge into pet parenthood? Let’s work together to serve the animals through foster care. Foster care is equally as important as adoptions because it provides so much more for our shelter pets than we can here at the shelter site.
The benefits animals receive from foster care include one on one attention, opportunities for the animal to grow and learn from a home environment, better immune health, better behavioral health and it shortens their length of stay in the shelter system.
Your contribution as a foster will provide us with a better understanding and perspective on what the ideal home for the pet may look like, plus BHS will provide you with all things necessary to care for your foster animal. We do our best to match you with a foster pet that meets your lifestyle and offer behavioral support during the fostering process.
We’ve widened our foster perimeter to include foster to adopt for pets with special circumstances such as length of stay or bonded pairs. Fostering Dogs can range anywhere from 3-5 days to 2-3 months depending on your availability, why not apply and have a furry weekend guest? You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to enrich the lives of our animals, they cannot wait to meet you! Apply today and an adoption counselor will contact you to schedule an appointment.
Max- Greetings Foster Parents!
BHS is looking for a Foster Parent for Max. Max is a pint sized American Pitbull Terrier mix who came to the shelter as a surrender. He has been struggling with the shelter environment and needs a quiet home so he can take a break from the hustle and bustle of the shelter site. Max is actually quite affectionate! He loves a soft blanket to curl up on and enjoys being around people. Other dogs make Max nervous so we’d love to find a place without other animals. Max enjoys toys, playing fetch and walks in calm environments. Max has been at the shelter for 50 days and he really could use a break while we continue the search for his new home. Please consider fostering Max!
